Nurturing:

The following is an excerpt from the Chapter 2 draft of my upcoming book, Your Natural Gift- Offering the Essence of your Heart. Nurturing is one gift from a reference list of natural gifts described in this chapter.

Nurturing: Like its cousin caring, nurturing offers people something they desperately need in today’s world. It extends beyond raising children. It is offering someone food or a drink when they stop by your house. It is touching someone’s shoulder or hugging them. It is offering someone a cup of coffee when they come into your office. It is making sure someone you know has somewhere to go for Thanksgiving and inviting them to go with you if necessary. Doing this nourishes people emotionally and spiritually. It meets their most essential needs as a human being.

In our technologically advanced and sometimes sterile world, nurturing is becoming a lost art. Many of the old school nurturing people are getting older or passing away. The gift of nurturing is now in the hands people who value it and choose to carry it on.

If you carry nurturing as a natural gift, it is essential that you have access to a nurturing environment. Non-nurturing environments will feel sterile and lonely. In these nurturing environments, there needs to be other people besides yourself offering the nurturing. Otherwise, your nurturing batteries will begin to lose their charge. One of the saddest things that I have witnessed as a psychotherapist is when a nurturing person marries a non-nurturing person. The nurturing person eventually shows up in my office saying things like, “I guess he is just not a warm and touch-oriented person.” Sure the nurturers adapt, but in doing so, they often move away from their natural gift and the essence of their being. If you are nurturing and single, add it to your must have list.

If you are nurturing and no longer have nurturing relationships in your life, you owe it to yourself to seek them out...

Amazing weblog! Do you might have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own weblog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a totally free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? You’ll find so several choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Appreciate it!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
